1:50am
short-lived from about a four- hour window tomorrow morning. let you know when we get to the game forecast overnight here tonight. so i think the rain here in washington, really the chance is after 3 a.m. we're into the upper 50s to near 60 to mid 60s by the time we get to about the heart of the city, i'd say. then we go 60 to 65. there might be a rumble of thunder and isolated storm. we're seeing the storms in the mountains and west virginia and way out in maryland. it is still a possibility. get to the afternoon, the rain comes to an end. the clouds sticking around. keeping it as a cool forecast. satellite and radar together. there is the rain toward romney,more field, west virginia, garrett county, oakland. it's already there. you'll see the rain overnight now. then you may be done with it. may see sunshine late in the day. get to it in the zone forecast. temperatures now that the overcast skies built in. holding the temperatures steady, falling into the 60s there as i explained.
1:51am
maybe an upper 50, then downtown we're about 65. so 3:45 tomorrow morning, very late here tomorrow night. some rainshowers start to spread in from the south. the best window of opportunity here, 6 a.m. to #10d p.m.. that's the immediate washington metro. we get our rain to be here. and there it is, 9:00. we have numerous showers here, maybe a thunderstorm within that. that's going to shut off. the big opportunity the steady showers to be here. that's in essence, 6 a.m. until #10d a.m. tough light showers sprinkle, anytime after 3 a.m., through the 1:00ed time frame tomorrow and. the steady shower 6 to #10d. going to get the rain at that time. this system is out of here. start off next week, southwest winds, lots of surge. that equals a warm day for this time of year. tuesday, a lot more sunshine, still a bit of a southwest wind and another warm day. but tuesday evening into wednesday. a front is going to come through. doesn't bring rain with it. that will bring in more mild temperatures. so ken, we're going to pack the
1:52am
stadium over in landover tomorrow night. at least we're going to end the rain. we'll keep clouds around. but a game time temperature, a kickoff at 68, a light northwest breeze at 5 to #10d. a light north breeze courtesy of the front coming through that shuts the rain out of here. so there we are in the western counties, sunshine leading through the afternoon. turns from sunshine to more than cloudy skies, showers in the day in washington. if off to the eastern shore, you'll see rain for nearly all of the day, a couple degrees, 68, 69 if you're there, not coming close to breaking 70. 74 for a high in washington, sunny skies and warmer temperatures as we start off the week. the front will bring in cooler, fall-like air wednesday through the end of the week. into next weekend, that is our next storm system. the best chance of rain right now overnight friday into saturday. so again, to repeat with that, the rain is going to be here. i don't think there's any doubt. there is a combination of a front, the leftovers of hermine dropping off the rain in the united states. a pretty wrapped up system.
1:53am
